She writes at Culture of Truth satirizes the Sunday Morning ‘news’ shows at the Bobblespeak Translations. Each week, he provides us with the most ridiculous moment from that Sunday.  9pm ET.

C-SPAN’s Book TV.

FDL’s Book TV:  Mind Wars: Brain Science and the Military in the 21st Century. “The first book of its kind, Mind Wars covers the ethical dilemmas and bizarre history of cutting edge technology and neuroscience developed for military applications. As the author discusses the innovative Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the role of the intelligence community and countless university science departments in preparing the military and intelligence services for the twenty-first century, he also charts the future of national security.” Chat with Jonathon D. Moreno about his new book, hosted by Jeff Kaye.

FDL’s Movie Night Monday:  How to Survive a Plague “is the story of the brave young men and women who successfully reversed the tide of an epidemic, demanded the attention of a fearful nation and stopped AIDS from becoming a death sentence. This improbable group of activists bucked oppression and, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, helping to identify promising new medication and treatments and move them through trials and into drugstores in record time. In the process, they saved their own lives and ended the darkest days of a veritable plague, while virtually emptying AIDS wards in American hospitals in the process. The powerful story of their fight is a classic tale of empowerment and activism that has since inspired movements for change in everything from breast cancer research to Occupy Wall Street. Their story stands as a powerful inspiration to future generations, a road map, and a call to arms. This is how you change the world.”  Come chat with host Lisa Derrick and her guests, 8pm ET.
